a new scarf for me!

A few days ago I received a package from Malaysia, it's from Scarf Sweethoney! Yay!
I won their Pashmina Anya in a recent giveaway held by Fashioning Faith.
LOVE the color! The fabric has a slight stretch on it, making it easy to put on and looked effortless stylish. The pashmina is quite large, I was able to wear it as a headscarf without wearing an inner yet it stay still on my head without any unwanted sight of hair.

a vintage dress

My mother sewed this dress for herself long time ago, with fabric from her late sister in law. 

I found this vintage dress hidden in the depth of her wardrobe and tried it on.. turned out it fits perfectly on me!
It just need a little adjustment, I shortened the hem a bit and re-attached the zipper and voila.. a vintage dress for me! ^^

Unique embroidery detail

My temporary sewing space. 
I hijack a corner in the living room with the sewing machine on the coffee table and me sitting on the step stool. No wonder I've been having back pain lately..

Perfect Match - Turquoise Promo

Have you seen the inaku new reversible bag here...?
I made it to complement the Turquoise Batik Dress but surely you could have each of them separately.

So why should you get them both? Besides they both being a perfect match, that is.
Well, it's because you can get them in lower price!

This offer is valid until you bought them ;) or someone bought one of them, dress or bag.
Remember this is one of a kind item.. so hurry!
